The beginning and end of a user-defined structure which is used to create record variables for random access file operations. Type definitions must be placed in a Visual Basic *.BAS module.
A type is a declared classifier that the value of an attribute, parameter, or variable must hold. The actual value must be an instance of that type or one of its descendants.
an integrity constraint, allowing a user to define a range of values that should be in an attribute of a tuple
a particular variable by looking at the code - unless you go back and refer to the variable declaration part
A description of a set of values and a valid set of operations on items of that type. For example, a variable of type BYTE can have any of a set of integer values within the range specified for the type on a particular machine.
A "sort" or "category" of data that can be represented by a programming language. Types differ in their properties (such as mutability and immutability), the methods and functions applicable to them, and in their representations. Python includes, among others, the string, integer, long, floating point, list, tuple, and dictionary types.
The type attribute indicates the type of data represented by the tag, its form is â€œt='TYPE'â€ where â€œTYPEâ€ is representative of the variable type.
in the definition of the elements in the metadata standard, a compound element has the type "compound" to provide a unique way to identify compound elements. For a data element, the type identifies the kind of value that can be assigned to the data element. The choices are "integer" for integer numbers, "real" for real numbers, "text" for ASCII characters, "date" for day of the year, and "time" for time of the day.
The attribute of a variable that determines what kind of data it can contain. Various types of data include Integer, Long, Variant, and String.
The type of a variable or other expression is the set of values that may be stored in the variable or that the expression may evaluate to and the operations that can be applied to these values.
describes what sort of information a variable stores, as well as how much space that information takes up.
A way of interpreting data. Every variable has a type that tells the computer how to interpret the bits that the variable really represents. There are many different types defined in C, and the programmer can define his own types as well.
